605 ILCS 5/4-508.1 from Ch. 121, par. 4-508.1
Deletes everything. Amends the Illinois Highway Code. Provides
that when the Department of Transportation conveys to the Illinois
State Toll Highway Authority an interest in land, rights or other
property acquired in connection with a federal-aid project that ceases
to exist, the Department must receive compensation equal to the fair
market value of the interest conveyed (instead of without
compensation) to be deposited into the Road Fund.
FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Illinois Toll Highway Authority)
It is unclear as to the value of this property and therefore
no dollar figure can be attributed to it, however, it is clear
that the passage of this bill would result in an increased cost
to the Tollway to construct any new roadway.
